Insight into what the whole hippie protest was over, perhaps? No need to tell people the absolute truth of what went down, in this instance, before they die.
As well as it was One Wedding and a Funeral, also.
Keith is an injured criminal, a wanted man. He tells Scott Miller to get him to a wedding. Gradually the story comes out that the wedding is his daughter's whom he has never seen and that the carpet bag contains her mother's wedding dress, who died when she was born.
Toss in Miller having to remove a pellet with a knife in a teepee in a rainstorm because Keith cannot see and this turns into quite a remarkable episode.
Yes, it is once again, another displaced episode from the wagon train, but this was a good episode.
Finally, Keith realizes he won't make it to the wedding, asks Miller to ride ahead with the gown and present it to his daughter.
Miller returns with the bouquet and a piece of wedding cake, says she was beautiful, happy to get the gown and married a doctor, wonderful man.
Keith dies happily.
Now McIntyre enters, he who has been trailing the missing Miller. Miller now reveals the daughter married in a saloon to a drunken justice of the peace, Miller bought the cake, picked the bouquet himself on the way back, and the daughter laughed at the dress as being dowdy.
McIntyre even points out that Miller buried Keith instead of collecting any reward that would have made him rich.
Finally, a remarkable reflection of the time as McIntyre doesn't feel any treehugging need to embrace Miller, weep with him or any of this other hogwash we now have to contend with today.
